In those days this leather motorcycle jacket was referred to as just Perfecto or Beck model 999 (manufactured by Schott). The small coin flap pocket started out as a custom option offered in the early 50's. By 1955 this coin pocket became a standard feature of this biker-style jacket known as the Perfecto One Star.Considered to be the best motorcycle jacket it caught the mainstream public's attention after Marlon Brando epitomized the coolest of cool, wearing his Perfecto in that iconic classic film The Wild One. Originally referred to as "the One Star", it was officially banned from schools across the US for an entire year in the mid 50s.
